The World Today

Resembles

Is much similar

To a neglecting parent/father

Who went on a cruise

Was absent most times

&

When he headed to what he used to call’HOME’

Found that there’s no such thing anymore;

His wife has been sleeping around

&

Left with one of her lovers

&

His kids had joined the gangs & so many other evil enterprises becoming drug addicts, traffickers & dealers.

 

 

We wonder what went wrong?!

This ‘MESS’  as you prefer to call it, is your latest invention

Like the ‘Automation’ that you keep threatening everyone with

Saying I feel like giving ‘Bread/Wages’ to the machines

Hey, ‘Man Up’ to the POLITICAL HAVOC/TURMOIL!

For ‘THE FORGOTTEN & THE NEGLECTED’,

Decided to also HAVE A SAY!

SMART For Goals

SMART is an abbreviation for a set of terms, which we use to measure GOALS, and they are:

S:Specific

M:Measurable

A:Attainable/Achievable

R:Realistic/Relevant

T:Time Bound

So let’s make a further breakdown to the SMART For Goals.

 

S: Know what you want and where are you heading to, for it will make your journey easier. Alice in Wonderland was asked where is she headed to, she mentioned that she got no clue, the cat she was asking for suggestion replies back to her saying; then it doesn’t matter !

Imagine doing the same, how much time, effort, and so many other things will be like a total waste during such journey to ‘I don’t know what GOAL‘?!

Someone smart once said ‘Be you, because everyone else is already taken’, one has got to know who they’re, what they stand for, don’t try to imitate or live another person’s dreams, life & goals. Your goals must be yours & must be a translation for who you are.

M:Goals got to be measurable, from time to time check progress, assess, evaluate & make necessary modifications.

A: Don’t make a very impossible goal that may discourage you from taking action, or a very easy one that might never challenge or motivate you.

R: Your goal as I said must be a translation of  who you are, whether it’s independent/interdependent goal, depending on your culture, point of view & how you see things(For example Cultures like America/Japan) operate from a unique sphere, one may place much emphasis on the person, the other gives the emphasis for the group.

T:They say the beautiful things about dreams is that they don’t have an expiry date, good for them, on the other hand goals are bound to a TIME FRAME, like taking a course or going to university they have a start & an end date.

PS: Portions here were written for a particular assignment for a course.

Exceprt From My Novel

Draft

They argued with them of not doing it, and gave them all the evidence why their marriage is doomed to fail.

His mother said to him ‘Don’t look very far, just look at the (White House), here you go, the biggest evidence you will ever need; a black man who was conceived by a white woman and a black man, and the rest is history. Son, such marriages do rarely work.’ She then took his hands in hers ‘Do you want that for your children, for me, do you want me to be that black grandmother like Obama’s white grandmother raising my son’s children from his failed marriage?!’

What do you think?

If some religious scholars had advised those doing ‘Hajj’ more than once to donate the money that will be allocated for such types of ‘Hajj’ to humanitarian cases & ‘Charity/Sadaqaha’ or helping another Muslim who has never been to ‘Hajj’ do ‘Hajj’, why not use the money you’ll be using to marry 2nd/3rd/4th wife use it for helping others as it is done in the example of ‘Hajj’ for multiple times or donate to help young males who didn’t marry at all to get married?!

Tons of problems/catastrophes/wars/poverty surround Muslims DONATE YOUR MONEY to help eradicate such poverty/catastrophes/problems & to help everyone!

 

 

Excerpt From My Novel

Am afraid the people who already are denying me WORK WILL STEAL MY NOVEL. This did happen more than once, things included in my writing are being discussed here & there, someone today was calling me by the name of one of the male characters in my novel, how can I protect my laptop from SPYWARE?!

My novel is about a male character called ‘Dauwd’,  he is a Muslim soldier in the American Army, people close to him & so on.

‘How many times do I have to repeat myself? I have said million times; I never wanted him to go? This war is not and was never our war!’ His face turned red indicating his irritation.

She began arguing with him feverishly ‘How can you say such a horrendous thing? Many Muslims and non Muslims had suffered severely from this plague called ‘Terrorism and Extremism?!’

‘It is not my fault you never use your brains, that you spend all your day on multiple phony platforms, and in the end think and talk like them!’

‘Like who?’ It was her turn to become extremely upset ‘Remember, you were the one who spent years chasing me to marry you and all of a sudden now I have become of no quality!’
